,000 and $7,000 at the end of the year after being bailed out buss they have no increase in their healthcare cost coverages and their per hourly rated which is approximately $58 per hour is going to stay in tact. this in my opinion is a big sweetheart deal directed by the united states government. >> so the bonus are not performance based or based on seniority. how are they determining these bonuses. >> these are sign on bonuses. i don't understand the issue of sign-on bonus when you join a company. you join the company and the network away from another company. these are existing workers getting end of year bonuses that are not based on incentives. we just bailed out this company general motors not too long ago. to hand out bonuses it's very peculiar to me. again the government does own 26% of general motors. i think it's a government directed bonus pool that is a lot of pay back for the unions who voted in administration in this office. >> heather: so on wednesday, gm did receive a christmas boost because u.s. treasury it would reduce its stake in gm by selling a chunk of sales back to the

? >> i don't think the romney campaign did a very good job. they ran away from the healthcare thing. by the time he cinched the nomination by march they forgot to pivot they forgot to do it. >> one thing they did a terrible job at they treated the media like a group. they would give briefings as a group. i'm a secretary by training and you can't treat the media as group. you have to get them fighting against themselves. give competition amongst reporters, you leak to one and you give one an interview and you sit down another so they are not all getting the same information and they are not able to gang up on you. >> jon: we talked about the fact there were so many polls taken. there was so much coverage of the campaign and the survey is interesting. pew study found that both campaigns did actually get more negative coverage, but the preponderance was far more the romney campaign. do the numbers surprise you, juan? >> it does surprise you. there is more balance there because i think the american people think the press thinks they were pro obama. >> numbers show they were.
